Horrendous Period Garb Find

I came across this painting today while researching Venetian styles and had to make sure I didn’t lose it. This is an example of how foreign the renaissance aesthetic could be from our own. I have a particular interest in celebrating and recreating authentic styles which today we see as being utterly hideous.

I’m also realizing I don’t really like Venetian garb, so I’m probably going to end up making a Florentine gown instead.
